What is this creature that looks something like a mad scientist might have created when he crossed a bunny, a pig and a possum?
Thats an aardvark.
Aardvark's come from Africa. They are nocturnal (coming out only at night) and live off of ants and termites. They will sometimes eat a fruit called an aardvark cucumber
The worlds most famous aardvark is probably Arthur who has a television show as well as the book series he was born in.
